Breast Implant Problems

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Medical malpractice that causes breast implant problems can have a devastating effect on your life. You may have horrific aesthetic problems, or you may have suffered severe health issues because of a surgical mistake or other malpractice related to your breast implants.

Risks are inherent to breast augmentation. Even if your surgeon provides the highest quality care and the greatest attention to the procedure, an unavoidable complication may arise; however, in some cases, breast implant problems could have been avoided if the surgeon had not acted carelessly.

Possible breast implant problems include:

  • Infection
  • Symmastia (uni-boob)
  • Ruptured artery
  • Nerve damage
  • Loss of sensation

Symmastia, nerve and breast damage and other surgical errors may be caused by a plastic surgeon who performs certain procedural steps in a way that deviates from what is normal. Also, life-threatening infections can be caused if an implant is placed in an unsanitary manner or if a surgeon fails to diagnose an infection.

The only way to find out if your breast implant problems were caused by medical malpractice is to consult our attorneys.
